Abinit User-developer interaction "save-the-date" June 1 and 4, 2021

Post by gonze » Wed Mar 31, 2021 9:44 pm

Dear ABINIT users,

One of the key points of ABINIT v9 is the improvement of the user experience (documentation, launch, complete pseudos tables, …).
In order to continue this effort, and linked to the 2021 ABINIT developer workshop, we will host two online "users meet developers" sessions of direct live discussion via videoconference, on specific topics chosen by users.
The sessions are scheduled on :
- Tuesday 1st June 10:00-12:00 CEST (most convenient for Europe and Asia users and developers e.g. 16:00-18:00 in Beijing and 17:00-19:00 in Tokyo)
- Friday 4 June 20:00-22:00 CEST (most convenient for American users and developers, e.g. 14:00-16:00 New-York/Montreal and 11:00-13:00 California).
Virtual discussion rooms will be open and offer ABINIT users the possibility to meet developers and discuss problems, challenges and requests.
In each room with a general topic, several developers will be present.
The discussions will be prepared and oriented according to the needs of the participants.

In a couple of weeks, a registration page will be opened, which will also collect questions and topics of interest.
Afterwards, answers to questions will be prepared by developers, including background material.
This will allow us to dig deeper than on the forum, and will be continued in the live discussion.

Save the date !
The organisers
M. Torrent, B. Amadon, F. Jollet, M. Verstraete, and X. Gonze
